Sigh. I thought you'd reformed and weren't going to spam people anymore. Dude, seriously, you're looking like the Estimated Prophet here. If people are interested, they're entirely capable of googling the bible and churches and sermons for themselves. And if they're not, a bunch of spam is hardly the recipe for success at "witnessing."

It seems that you see your mission in life as converting and "reforming" Deadheads, almost 20 years after the tours ended. But it doesn't work this way. It's annoying for folks here, counter-productive for your purposes, and just makes you look bad. That's not the same as "hating the message" or you being a martyr or whatever. It's just that ... well, no one likes spam.

I have several causes which I believe in, but would never post here, because people do not come to this forum to hear about all my goofy beliefs and opinions. That's not what it's for. Non-Dead related posts are tolerated as long as there's an explicit tag in the subject line and the nature of the post is relatively benign (music-related posts or posts about current events are generally considered okay). But preaching, I think, is explicitly disallowed.

Also, on a personal note, I think you're a f**king moron, and an insulting one at that, to imply that Bible believers are somehow more "reformed" than the rest of us. I'd say that as someone who has divorced myself of the need to believe in any kind of deity, I'm the reformed one, and you're the idiotic, reactionary buffoon desperately clinging to Bronze Age myths that were invented before we had any idea what fire was.

I mean, as long we're preaching....

Would you have been less offended if c-freedom had said "saved Deadheads", "born again Deadheads", or even "Christian Deadheads"?

And on a personal note, I don't really think that having divergent views qualifies one as a "f'n moron". There is room in the world, and in this forum, for all types of people to coexist. All it take is a little respect for one another, and maybe a modicum of tolerance. But as Dennis Miller says, "Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong."

I'd be significantly more tolerant of his (IMO) absurd belief system if he kept it to himself on this forum, but since he hasn't, I feel less inclined to be polite. I'm not offended by the fact that he believes something nonsensical to me, I'm offended by his unabashed attempts to attract attention to it on a forum about music.

"There is room in the world, and in this forum, for all types of people to coexist." Yep, agreed. I couldn't be more respectful and tolerant of individuals as people. I don't feel the need to proselytize my non-belief in places where people are convening to discuss other things; if all he had done was mention that he was religious I wouldn't have bothered him about it. It was the nature of the post that inspired me to give my own opinion of his views.

Perhaps moron is the wrong word, though; after all, there are plenty of people smarter than myself who believe in God. I think the belief (or, at least, the *certainty*) is moronic even if the person is not.

Edit: To answer your first question, I would certainly have been less offended/annoyed if he hadn't implied his superiority over me by using the word "reformed," although I still would have moaned about his hijacking a Grateful Dead forum to spread his crap.

So when the Grateful Dead, and Jerry Garcia Band, veer into the realm of gospel music(AKA "religious shit"), do you turn the music off or hit the skip button. And can't "Amen" also be considered "religious shit"? Doesn't religion, in one form or another, permeate our dsily lives. What is your religion?

As much as some misguided, self-professed Christians would like it; this country has no "state religion". And other than many of us "forcing" our children to attend church until they are old enough to decide for themselves, Christianity isn't nearly as much a forced religion as it was historically. I'm not saying that faction is extinct, just not as prevalent as before. Yea we occasionally "witness"(or proselytize depending on your POV), but are not likely to beat you with our bibles, nor water board you into salvation. And no, baptism is not a form of water boarding.✌

It seems baptism can be risky and confining it to a body of water with no undertow or waves might be a wise decision.I wish the officiant commented further on this mishap.

Not sure I'd agree with you in saying the "forced religion" faction isn't as prevalent. Historically the most prevalent faction was mainstream; so while the average American was assumed to attend church, you can't reasonably look at a Norman Rockwell image like the one below, for instance, and think mom is taking her kids to an evangelical church. Even in the 18th, 19th and early 20th century, when there were Great Awakenings and revivals, the fundamentalist variety -- the dominant voice of today -- was by no means a mainstream phenomenon. "Mainline" and "mainstream" Protestant churches were called that because they WERE.

The Flying Nun, the angel in It's a Wonderful Life, Father Mulcahy in MASH, Julie Andrews in Sound of Music ... their portrayal reflected a general view of the church as basically a good thing (although, individually, you might rather read the Sunday paper than go to church.) But the social pressure to identify as Christian with the rest of a church-going nation wasn't at all the same thing as being a "Christian nation" in the bible-as-policy-guide and God-as-a-Fox-pundit sense.

I've said this before, but I'll say it again: The reason the Dead could make religious references and sing gospel songs is that they were doing it in the '60s and '70s, BEFORE the Moral Majority and rise of the evangelical right and all the negativity associated with it. There is simply no way to imagine that a Hunter born and raised in a later time, and a Garcia singing the songs today, would have included those songs and references, in spite of their poetry and literary impact. The associations, 40-50 years ago, were all historical/literary: an imaginary rural world where the old-time religion was humble and sincere, a set of literary associations such as Joyce or Yeats might use, etc. Coming today, those references would just bring too much baggage and negative modern associations. The joint dominance of the evangelical and right wings in a highly pressured public discourse that attributes "evil opponent" status to those who don't share their views, both politically and theologically (even within Christianity), may well be historically unprecedented in the US. And certainly it's very much about a forced state religion, though being born-and-bred Americans, the proponents of that viewpoint would never say it.

That's not the world this image is from, in May 1959.

OK, that's my sermon for the day :-)

I was thinking more along the lines of the Puritans, Pilgrims and most other WASP colonists who would rather see someone dead rather than "unconverted". Of course the Spanish Inqusition was another instance of "forced religion". Christians may be called to evangelize, but not to kill the unreceptive. And I will stay away from the whole religion vs. spirituality argument so as not to further anger the anti-religious among us.

The 60s REALLY took the life right out of the ol man on this front; from 1970 on he never went to church again...it really was the case that so much happened that impacted him, and all of us, that it just all went up in a "poof!" and evaporated...he would've MUCH preferred it to have remained nice and neat and according to "plan"...

Not to be, however, no way...but, that's a long story and nobody round here wants to be bored w the "Stalingrad" of my home life...har, har...classic clash.

Well, that's a perfect picture of our family, with a slight change in the kids-in-a-row lineup. My dad sometimes got roped in. Then in the mid-70s, his two brothers got swept up in the evangelical tide, and he once even kicked one of them out of his office for visiting and proselytizing ... but if anyone else criticized them, he'd have none of it. Very old-fashioned: pro-religion, but anti-pushing it on others.

Sort of the basic attitude you'd find underlying a BEW: when Delilah Jones goes to "meet her god," the implication is that the old man wasn't a church-going sort but took it as A Good Thing. That, I'd say, is a very solid traditional American attitude: personal feelings, no interest in display. You see it, say, in Lonesome Dove (which of course has a GD connection), where Augustus reads his Bible with appreciation (but no particular religiosity) and certainly no one disparages people of faith, but the Menfolk in particular don't go in for it much.

John Wayne wouldn't go to church. He'd also be disgusted with anyone who criticized religion. Jimmy Stewart would probably go with his wife. James Cagney would repent at the end. Spencer Tracy would either be a priest or the guy in that chair.

No haven't; I was only drawing the humor/tragic connection between the low success rate discussed previously hereabouts, the fact that the typical 12 step is "religious", and the suggestion the latter could help w "too much religion"...

A triple play, methinks? Regardless of your take on it all (I for one, dearly hope the success rate goes UP, and soon, no matter WHAT method you adopt!), it seemed funny, in a tragic sort of way...
